    A tropical fruit basket explosion in the mouth. The 55.5% carries all flavors forward wonderfully. Extremely tasty and pleasant in the mouth. Too bad I only had one sample :-(.

      90 90
      extremely fruity (mango, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon, green apple, orange zest), forest honey, vanilla, sweet, slight oak influence, slightly grassy, very fine and gentle note of nuts on top, even some milk chocolate

    Nose: Oncoming is a smoky charcoal scent, the main note is a powerful fruit, it all starts with citrus, lemon peel, orange peel, lemon essential oil (yes, clear oily feel), mango pit, and some fiber Vegetarian is very rich, well, it all behaves naturally, organically. Overall, the smell is not very good, I still feel that there is too much smoke, too little fruit, a little lack of ripeness, and the aroma is not very harmonious.

    Drink: The wine is refreshing, waiting for you, a super fruit bomb explodes in the mouth immediately, a lot of tropical fruits, passion fruit, pineapple, honey, mango, citrus, mixed with some fresh herbs and woody notes, the tail rhyme Very long, I'm not joking, I repeat, the finish is really long, and the fruitiness is very persistent.

    Overall: A fresh and clean bourbon cask can best show the quality and character of the distillery. I am very pleasantly surprised to taste such a single barrel whisky that has changed Arran. Thank you billy's, thank you Gene. It's delicious. For me, who likes fruity flavors, it reminds me of the BN of 96. Refill!

    One of the fruitiest contemporary bottlings for years. Explosion of mango, pineapples, passion fruit, citrus zest, honey and cereals. Fantastic Bourbon cask. Brilliantly quaffable!
